There are many forms of marks. You have a German word trademark or a community trademark? Your product is protected by a form mark? Or is a company slogan, magazine title or software designation concerned?
We not only advise you on the conditions and strategies for protection but can also introduce you to capable specialists for registration with whom we cooperate intensively for many years.
If another comes too close to your protected trademark we conduct the infringement proceedings for you before the relevant courts and enforce your rights to an injunction, destruction and damages. With our expertise, we can advise precisely on the limits to the risk of misleading. Since we regularly appear before the relevant courts in Germany, we also know to which opinions they tend.
